That looks so good! My husband thought I'd lost it the first time I made Couscous and now he's totally hooked on it.

I make a chicken/artichoke/mushroom stir fry (for lack of a better term) that I serve over couscous- this recipe would be the perfect complement. Thanks!

Oh- and I found your blog via a Mormon blog listing site, hope it's okay to comment?

Welcome, Cynthia! Of course, I appreciate all comments. I'd love to have the recipe for the stir fry you just mentioned -- I'm always looking for good things to try!
